Christmas 2022

Saturday, 24 December

After they had heard the king, they went on their way,

and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them

until it stopped over the place where the child was.

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

Matthew 2:9-10 (NIV)


We also wish you a Christmas season where joy knows no bounds.

All the best and God’s blessings for the coming year.

Christmas card competition

Tuesday, 20 December 2022

From the many beautiful works of art, the jury chose Félina’s picture. Congratulations!
The picture now adorns the Christmas cards and delights so many people!

Advent celebration

Thursday, 8 December 2022

In the school building there was a bakery where you could bake stars, in the 1st/2nd class you could put carnations in oranges, fold stars, listen to stories, draw and read books in the assembly hall and the 3rd/4th class organised an escape room.

In the schoolyard they served a dinner and “Wiehnachtsguzzi” for everyone. With a warm “Punsch” in their hands, they stood around the fire and chatted with other parents or walked along the lantern path around the school building.

These offers and activities were framed by Christmas carols.

It was a wonderful event! Many thanks to all who helped!

We wish you a blessed Advent season!

Fine arts

Monday, 5 December 2022

Try out different techniques, compare colour combinations and perceive, observe and reflect on images.
This sounds so “technical”… but artistic design is very personal and creative. This is exactly what the pupils should have time for in this subject. In addition to the “head-heavy” subjects, the artistic subjects are very important to us.

Autumn topic in the kindergarten

Monday, 21 November 2022

Actually, I would love to be in kindergarten right now… because they are dealing with a very exciting and diverse topic there. The apple is being examined, different apple varieties are being tried out, apple seeds are being planted, apple rings are being cut, apple pictures are being stamped or painted with a rolling “Kugeli”… everyday kindergarten life is sooo varied! Sometimes the children bring something home, then you also experience the theme a little bit.


Friday 18 and Saturday 19 November 2022

The educational symposium is always a mixture of further education and a happy reunion with colleagues from all over Switzerland.

On Friday afternoon, there was an “exchange of punches” with the VBG team. Culinary delights were provided in the form of burgers and in the evening with an oriental buffet.

Saturday was “bring and share”. The schools presented teaching ideas, innovative projects, class readings or experiments in NT lessons. We were allowed to present the UnicaFlex model. During the breaks, you could meet new people, exchange ideas and network.

It was a great meeting and we thank the ICB and the SalZh for the organisation!

🎡 Autumn Fair – GYM 🎠

Thursday, 10 November 2022

We brought the autumn fair to Liestal… so at least a little bit 😁

In the 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th grade PE classes, there were rides such as the free-fall tower, Tagada or the giant slide. During these activities, barrel organ music was playing, in keeping with the autumn fair.

Of course, sweets were not to be missed: at the end, there was homemade Schoggimagenbrot for each child 🤤

Now the autumn fair is over again and we are looking forward to next year 🤩

The secondary school visits the job fair in Basel

Tuesday, 20 October 2022

On the annual schedule was the job fair in Basel. Just going there and back would be too boring. That’s why the class hiked along the Rhine, visited the Schoggihüüsli in Pratteln, experienced the Rhine harbour “in action” as a car was unloaded and above all had a lot of time as a class.

At the career fair, the pupils looked at the professions that interested them. Then they went back to Liestal.

3rd/4th grade field trip to World of Dinosaur

Tuesday, 20 October 2022

In NMG, the class is currently dealing with the topic of dinosaurs. So it was only natural that they went on the monthly hike to Langenbruck to visit the prehistoric giants that weigh several tonnes.

To experience the 30-metre-long Diplodocus, the 2-tonne Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Torosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Dimetrodon, Iguanodon, Parasaurolophus, Maiasaurusin “real size” was very exciting!


Thursday, 6 October 2022

The children and teachers showed full commitment! Both in the run-up to the sponsor search and on the day itself. In good conditions, they did laps for a good cause.

Now the sponsors’ contributions are being collected and we are curious about the final sum.

Many thanks to Mr Gutzwiller for the great photos!

“TUUSIG CHLIINI STACHELI” = A thousand little spikes

Thursday, 29 September 2022

A hedgehog has 1000 spines. They like to eat insects, earthworms, earwigs, snails, centipedes or spiders.

“And Mummy, if you find a hedgehog and it’s not quite fit, you have to report it to the hedgehog centre!”

The children got to know the hedgehog in many different ways, with handicrafts, many songs and verses.
Now the hedgehog can come home with them before the holidays. They built a nest especially for him. It even has a pillow inside!


Saturday, 24 September 2022

Equipped with brooms and cleaning things, many parents came to the school on this rainy Saturday. Things were repaired, windows cleaned and the whole school building shone again.
Mrs Wyss thought that this event should be renamed. There is cleaning, yes… but there is also a lot of laughing, fine dining, meeting new parents and meeting familiar parents. That is why it is more of a celebration than a “general cleaning”.
A mother has decorated the snack table with flowers to match!

Many thanks to the many hard-working helpers!

Opening of the playground

Monday, 19 September 2022

Finally the time had come! The playground was officially opened!

The children were able to follow the entire set-up, marvelled and their anticipation grew.

After the fall protection was laid, patience was needed until it had dried.

On the first day of the project days, the time had come. Parents brought fine contributions for the buffet, there was a speech of thanks, a big pair of scissors was made and the ribbons were ceremoniously cut!

At this point we would like to express our great gratitude once again. We are simply overwhelmed by the many donations, people who have pitched in and supported the school and the project! THANK YOU!!!


Monday, 19 – Wednesday 21 September 2022

Painting cocoa pictures, building a barefoot path, working with soapstone, examining carnivorous plants, experimenting with fire, crafting mosaic or lanterns, making herbal oil, creation in Chinese, drawing cards from sand or watercolours, playing theatre, baking buns, constructing and trying out a waterwheel…. and much more!


Monday, 19 September 2022

The greem light for this project was given 2 years ago. The pupils ran diligently at the sponsored run to raise money for it.

Then a project team was formed and planning began. Offers were obtained, discussions held, calculations made and information collected.

The committee then decided on the play sculpture by moveart. Then money was collected again for the remaining amount. A crowdfunding campaign was launched and the target amount was even exceeded!

In September ’22, the construction work began. The pupils watched eagerly as the playground was transformed.

After only 2 weeks, the new place was ready and could be officially opened on 19 September.


Monday, 15 August 2022

Now the school year has started again! We welcomed pupils from the primary school and playgroup with the story of the “crispy grain and silver stone – mice”. Of course, every single child was also greeted and their name was hung on the “thank you garland”.

Officially we start our “25 – years – UNICA- School – Anniversary – Year” with this year`s motto “MERCI!”
